SPOTLIGHT ON EDUCATION

At any one time, it is estimated that 4.5% of the population has a chronic wound (Guest et al 2015). The costs attributed to wound care and its associated care is estimated at around £5.3bn1, causing a significant burden to the NHS’s budget. However, the time spent on wound care education is estimated at just one day a year.

Could the ActivHeal® Academy be part of the solution?

The ActivHeal® Academy is a multi-tiered education programme designed to support clinicians of all levels. Undertake a series of wound care courses, test your competency and receive a CPD certificate to help support with their revalidation and Continuing Professional Development.

 

Learn on the go

The ActivHeal® Academy allows clinicians to learn on the go and at a time that suits them with a mobile optimised online education platform.
